Atletico Madrid are back in action with another La Liga fixture this week as they take on Levante on Thursday. Atletico Madrid have been impressive this season and will need to win this game.

Levante are in 19th place in the La Liga standings and have struggled to meet expectations this season. The Valencia-based outfit suffered a 5-3 defeat against Sevilla over the weekend and will need to be at their best in this match.

Atletico Madrid, on the other hand, are in fourth place in the league table at the moment and are yet to hit their stride this season. Los Colchoneros were held to a 2-2 draw by Real Sociedad in their previous game and will need to bounce back in this fixture.
